I would not: Unless instructed by the dentist i would not. I would only use one or the other. Call a dentist or your family doctor or the E.R. The cause of the pain needs to be determined and the cause treated.
Dr. Arnold Malerman
Orthodontics 53 years experience
Not advised: The infection needs treatment, not an overdose of otc products in an attempt to mask symptoms. Please call your dentist for an emergency visit. May need root canal treatment or extraction and replacement.
Dr. Louis Gallia
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 45 years experience
Yes: Yes but won't solve problem. See DDS ASAP
